James Henry Leuba (1868-1946)[1] was an American psychologist, best known for his contributions to the psychology of religion. His work in this area is marked by a reductionistic tendency to explain mysticism and other religious experiences in physiological terms. Philosophically, his position may be described as naturalism. His work points to analogies with certain drug-induced experiences. He argued for a naturalistic treatment of religion, which he considered to be necessary if religious psychology was to be looked at scientifically.
